Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Project introduction

The project is separated to two different stages:

First: The project is aiming to take the Arabic youth to the next level in filmmaking, using the best techniques weather if it is shooting or film making process by our free course, fully in Arabic from A to Z. Depending on Udemy platform the equipments used is going to have enough variety to suit any need or availability that the student acquires and in the end of the course students will be certified so they can show their abilities in different work conditions.

Second: Creating the first Arabic production studio that's based on a website and physically in Turkey as a head quarts for the huge Arabic youth amount like Syrians that had to emigrate to Turkey because of the war. after the students get their fully course and claim the certification here they can ably their earnings on the website from all over the Arabic world or directly from Turkey in the main company work area.

Project benefits

1-Providing the first professional education course with the latest technologies that’s used in the west but this time in the Arab world for Arabs worldwide that can lead to a new era of cinematography and production in the Arab world.

2-Giving the Arabic woman the chance to create her own promotional videos for private business even at home for those who can’t find a job outside their houses because of family responsibilities or maybe they can consider private second part-time job if they are already have a basic job by marketing online or take pre taken videos to edit and deliver without needing for any mobility just from their computers.

3-Giving the chance for those who achieved the full course to be able to share their knowledge from their place by creating their projects for local businesses or even create their own courses adding their personal innovative skills and make their own platforms.

4-Comparing the Arabic content and the English content in cinematography we can find that there is hundred thousands of courses paid and free in the west while in the Arabic content it is really poor and most the time paid while the free content always suffer from the lake of information, equipment and professionalism and with our new content we can supply all this need in order to create rich content and free in the same time for all those who in need.

5-Create job opportunities for youth who’s interested in this field instead of travelling to the west hoping they can invest their experiences while they can show the new face of the Arabic production in their own countries.

6-Start to depend on local powers to serve Arabic companies that’s welling to invest in Turkey.

 7-Taking the new step to show the presence of Arabic cinema made by our trainees to engage with the international competitions and festivals.

The Dream

After being forced to leave my country because of cruel war I came to Turkey with empty hands and teared heart BUT with a great HOPE. I saw my people being treated bad in a lot of places and I’ve been always wishing to do something that can improve our situation, it’s funny to be in my age and see all these disasters and still have that dream that’s one day I’ll make the world a better place to live, well I am stick to the plan actually but I’ll start with my nation the ARAB WORLD and then with you worldwide, after arriving to Turkey in few days I decided to follow my dream in photography and filmmaking but since it is Turkey I learned Turkish first and thank god after one year I had a scholarship for university in Journalism now I am in my second year. Beside that I spent years and years in improving my skills in filmmaking, editing, photography and so on, then this skills were appreciated by Turkish community and I had the chance to work for wedding photography shop where I could apply all my skills and even improve it more and more, so I took it to the next level and started producing short movies using the shop’s equipment and made 3 short movies and there is also 2 on the way. Meanwhile I had a chance to do my own work and be my own boss by doing promotional videos for cafes and restaurants to make some money for living because my family stayed in Syria they can’t afford living in foreign country if they can’t open business abroad so now it’s me on my own trying to draw my own path in this hard life by reaching someday my goal to create production company and give my gift to the Arab world sharing all my hard work and skills for all this years by one organized professional content so they have better future and less pain and you my dears pushing me forward is something I’ll appreciate till the last second of my life let’s see if we can write our own destiny and make the DREAM become TRUE.

Thanks for all you support and for those who can’t support financially spreading the project is also a huge support.
